Hi Emem,

This should do the trick

Random randomGenerator = new Random();
int randomNumber = randomGenerator.nextInt(10);
String intAsString = Integer.toString(randomNumber);

You can also convert an integer into a String like this:

intAsString = "" + randomNumber;

But it is an unconventional way to do it. Its the "quick and dirty" way :)
